Be Thankful - Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Day 2 of the Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop brings out the fall colors. The Mocha Me Happy stamp set with matching die was paired with mini blooms for a happy Fall coffee cup. I used pumpkin and fern for the stamps. Autumn Wishes provides the wreath for the background and the sentiments. A little twine, a few latte pearl stickers and some gold wink of stella finish off the look.

Here's the inside. I love the sentiment inside the simple wreath.

Hope you're enjoying the hop and hope to see you play along! Click on the link for the details:

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!! Hot Java! - blog candy!

It's here! It's here!! The Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is here!!! I love this hop. So many creative ideas and so many awesome coffee images and so much fun!
My first entry is a card featuring an Art Impressions stamp, Cathy Caffeine, that just cracks me up! I've not had any coffee yet today so am missing out on my most important meal and I think I could drink an entire cup like that! And, that sentiment! so fun! Oh - speaking of the sentiment - I liked it so much, I bought it twice! (oops - lol!)  Guess what? That is my blog candy. Leave me a comment and I'll pick a lucky winner at the end of the hop to receive that fun sentiment!

Back to the card, I'm kind of addicted to using the colors, ocean and lime, together. I don't know why but it works for me. Just a great combo! And, did you notice the lime green bow?! I love the a muse studio bows because it's one die and you just fold and go - so easy to put together! We've got 4 sizes, you've got to check them out! (

I just noticed that I don't have the layering piece on straight. oops. I needed more coffee in my system. hee hee!

I've got an A Muse Studio project to share next so be sure to pop back and check it out. 

Happy hopping!

Miss You - Double Z-Fold Box Card!

This card is soooo fun! I love how it looks and it's so easy to make. I made two versions of the double z-fold card. I did one that was horizontal (shown here) and one vertical (coming soon). So many ways to play and decorate. You can do a wider band across or narrower or several. So many options.

Here are the dimensions for this "Miss You" card:
Card base:  4-1/8" X 11. Score at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2".
Band is 1-1/8" X 11". Score at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2".

The layer pieces are 1/8" smaller than the flap so 2-5/8" X 4" for the card layers.

1 X 5-3/8", 1 X 2-5/8" (twice) for the band.

Here's the folded look. It fits into an A2 envelope with ease.
I have to stop and say - aren't the colors gorgeous! Grape, Berry and Lime mixed with Vanilla - yum!! And, party foul on my part when I designed my card, I didn't realize that the Everything's Rosy paper pack had been discontinued. It was my fave! But, you can use any coordinating DP for the butterfly trio dies and it will be wonderful! I love the bow on the mason jar die cut out! You could put it anywhere on the jar and you could change the sentiments out to birthday or anniversary or friendship - it works for so many things!
Here's the card open - see that cool box effect.
And, here's a slightly blurry top view - so fun!
The cool thing is that when you stretch it out to the full length - it lays completely flat so it's easy to write a note to the recipient. :)
I hope you'll try making a double z-fold box card. Play around with the width of the band and have a blast!
